Holistic Dentistry

Taking into account a patient's overall health is incredibly important when prescribing and providing dental treatment.

At South Ogden Smiles in South Ogden, UT, serving Weber County, we provide holistic dentistry to benefit your overall health.

So what makes a holistic dentist unique?

Benefit from a Holistic Approach to Dental Treatment

Personalized Attention

Because our private dental practice is small, we are able to provide personalized and attentive treatment to each and every one of our patients. For years, Dr. Patrick Tanner has been recognized for his ability to effectively treat both a patient's smile and, in turn, their overall health.

Complete Treatment

Dr. Tanner educates his patients on how dentistry plays an essential role in the health of the whole body. Our goal is to successfully treat your body, mind, spirit, and smile, leaving you feeling rejuvenated, healthy, and beautiful.

Improved Health

Working closely with naturopaths and chiropractors allows our dental team to prescribe treatments that strengthen a patient's immune system and improve their overall health.

How Are Holistic Dentists Different from Other Dentists?

"Holistic" means taking many components into consideration as a "whole." Holistic dentists are interested in helping you achieve whole-body health through optimal oral health. To do this, holistic dentists only use safe, biocompatible materials to restore your smile. 

Unlike some dentists, holistic dentists do not offer amalgam fillings. Because mercury is a toxin, Dr. Tanner uses mercury-free, tooth-colored fillings and crowns that bond securely to your teeth and look completely natural. He also only uses distilled water in his treatments. By trusting your smile to a holistic dentist, you can expect to achieve better overall health through dentistry.

Why should you be concerned about amalgam fillings? 

*According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.

Because cavities will affect most adults in their lifetime, it's important to find a solution that can benefit your oral health without compromising your overall wellness

Our Dental Office Provides Many Holistic Services

Air Abrasion

This procedure uses concentrated air pressure in combination with powder to gently remove tooth decay and plaque without having to use a drill or needle.

Drug-Free Pain Relief

For many of our patients, suffering from headaches and paralyzing migraines is a thing of the past. Dr. Tanner uses revolutionary non-drug treatments to relax the stressed muscles under your scalp, preventing migraine headaches from occurring. If you have been diagnosed with migraines and have been given prescription pain relievers, Dr. Tanner may be able to help you achieve drug-free pain relief.

Ozone Therapy

We are proud to be one of only a select few dental practices that provide ozone therapy for our patients. Ozone therapy is the use of the O3 molecule, also known as ozone, in several dental applications. Ozone molecules bond with dangerous substances like viruses, fungus, and bacteria that develop within the mouth. This treatment is safe, painless, and can enhance procedures like root canal therapy and pre-treatment for sealants.

Preventive Dental Exams

Dr. Tanner recommends patients undergo general cleanings twice a year. Even regular brushing and flossing can leave behind some amount of bacteria. If plaque remains on your teeth long enough, your risk for developing cavities and periodontal (gum) disease increases. Starting preventive dental care at an early age helps protect the beauty and health of your smile.

Why Choose Dr. Tanner as Your Holistic Dentist?

Dr. Tanner and His Family

Dr. Tanner is an easy-going, friendly, and relatable dentist. His experience in preventive dentistry goes beyond his years of education and practice in South Ogden, UT.

Dr. Tanner is able to relate to what his patients are going through and sympathizes with their suffering, as he suffers from TMJ disorder himself. Dr. Tanner stands by the services that he provides, as he has used several cosmetic dentistry treatments to enhance his own smile.

Advanced Dental Tools in a Calming Setting

Although our dental facility in South Ogden, Utah, is modern and equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the atmosphere at South Ogden Smiles remains warm, welcoming, and relaxing. We take every opportunity to make your holistic dentistry experience enjoyable and calming. 

Our diagnostic tools are advanced and effective. Using digital x-rays, Dr. Tanner can more accurately evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums. This advanced technology exposes our patients to 90% less radiation than conventional x-rays. Dr. Tanner carefully and thoroughly examines your smile, performing oral cancer screenings and checking for abnormalities. Discovering and diagnosing potential complications before they develop can help us more successfully treat you before symptoms become more severe.
